Who Wants To Guess How Many Bids The Schooner “Nathaniel Bowditch” Received At Public Auction A Couple Of Days Ago?

From Wikipedia

Nathaniel Bowditch, the fourth of seven children, was born in Salem, Massachusetts, to Habakkuk Bowditch and Mary (Ingersoll) Bowditch. At the age of ten, he was made to leave school to work in his father’s cooperage, before becoming indentured at twelve for nine years as a bookkeepingapprentice to a ship chandler.

ROCKLAND — It’s a sad day when a storied local business ends up in financial trouble and goes on the auction block, but when it’s a schooner that dates back to 1922 and a business that continues to ply the tourist trade off Maine’s Midcoast, there is much reason to mourn.

The schooner Nathaniel Bowditch will beauctioned to the highest bidder Friday, Feb. 14, at 1 p.m. at Sharp’s Wharf (Bay View Landing) in Camden. The Nathaniel Bowditch, owned by Owen and Cathie Dorr of Rockland, was seized Dec. 23, 2013, at its Rockland Harbor berth in Lermond Cove by U.S. Marshals and towed to Camden Harbor. A civil foreclosure case against the Dorrs has been working its way through the U.S. District Court’s Admiralty Division in the weeks leading up to and following the seizure.

Owen Dorr said Wednesday that while he and his wife don’t have the ability to bail themselves out financially and save the boat, they want to remain in the windjamming trade.

Discovery Auction (Walk-a-Round Style) Today January 20th – Monday night – 6pm (Inspection 3-6) 1 Lexington Ave. Magnolia Village in Gloucester, MA 01930

Discovery Auction

Extreme Snow Date Tues. Jan. 21st

Those of you who’ve attended our most recent events, know that well, we haven’t really had any RECENT events, because we’ve been very busy stocking up the old warehouse and this Discovery Auction is going to be jam packed with treasures!

What exactly IS a Discovery Auction?

A discovery auction is probably the most exciting and fun of all types of auctions to attend! No one really knows what’s going to be there. OK, so we have an idea, but up until the day of the sale, even we don’t know everything that the auction will include. That’s because we’re going to pack it with the best, most unusual, profitable loot we can find, right up until the day of the sale!

What! No listing? No pictures?!

Nope. We may post a few on our Facebook Page or on www.capeannauction.com

You don’t really have any stuff yet do you? That’s why there are no pictures.

Wanna bet? :) Seriously, we are packed for this sale. But posting tons of pics and posting a detailed listing is time consuming, time better spent on getting the sale ready!

What will the cat drag in…

While we won’t give you specifics, we can tell you that there will be lots of antiques, glass & china, ephemera, furniture, box-lots & surprises!

Food?

A light snack bar & coffee by Glosta Joes!

Terms:

Cash, checks & credit cards accepted w/ID

Helpful tips:

Bring boxes & packing, get there early enough to inspect, and be prepared to be on your feet for a while. This is a walk-a-round auction with no seating. (Be wary of standing too close to friends who may want to bid on the same things you do!)

Buyer’s Premium?

N-O-P-E!

What do you mean by Extreme Snow date?

We will have the auction unless there are severe, unsafe driving conditions. Check our website or our Facebook page if you have questions about cancellation
MA Lic#2621If you want to participate in future auctions as a seller or have something to sell to us directly, email to wkolenda@gmail.com

Reminder ~ Auction Tonight 1 Lexington Ave in Magnolia 6:00pm. Inspection starts at 4:00pm.

What are you doing tonight? Do you love antiques, sit glued to the TV when American Pickers, Pawn Stars and Storage Wars are on? Do you get up at 5am to be ready for yard sales? Want to go shopping at a venue that has unique one of a kind items? Looking for a special gift for someone? What if that place let YOU be in control of how much you pay? If any of this sounds like fun, you should head over to 1 Lexington Ave in Magnolia tonight for the auction being held by Cape Ann Auction. The sale is filled with antiques, jewelry, coins, furniture, glass & china and much more. It starts at 6pm, but inspection starts at 4pm and there’s a lot of things to see so you should get there early.

St. Ann’s School Auction Fundraiser From Fr Matthew Green

Good morning, Joey!
The St. Ann’s School auction fundraiser last night was a great event. I wasn’t able to stay for the whole thing, but I snapped some photos while I was there. Unfortunately, I didn’t get everyone’s names to label the photos, but I have to run to preside a funeral now anyway so wouldn’t have time to label them all anyway…

Gloucester UU Church’s “Bidding for Good” Auction Site

Jerry Ackerman Writes-

There’s someone out there who would DIE to have a poster signed by BRAD PITT and TERRENCE MALICK… It’s up for sale now, at a bargain price, on the Gloucester UU Church’s “Bidding for Good” auction site… but TIME IS SHORT – THE AUCTION CLOSES TUESDAY EVENING. This film hit the theaters last week – so this item is HOT.

Here’s the description…

Picture this on YOUR WALL!

Brad Pitt/Terrence Malick SIGNED poster

Rare teaser poster for the upcoming film by Terrence Malick, "The Tree of Life." Very few posters of this initial campaign featuring a baby’s foot are in circulation. It was only out for a few weeks when it was replaced by the final poster which is the multi image one that’s everywhere now. This copy has been signed by writer/director Terrence Malick and producer/star Brad Pitt.  Size 27" X 40". Comes in mailing tube, excellent, unused condition.

Here’s the link:

Please let folks know – TIME IS SHORT!
